These are pretty popular 'round these parts. I know some of you have them so let’s hear some personal reviews.
And before you ask… yes, earlier models were recalled. Any necessary fixin’ will have been done to these units.
There are some troubling reviews on Amazon that say specifically the Woot refurbed fans have excessive scratches and dents on the case.
Has this issue been addressed by Woot since those reviews were made in March and April?
You can clearly see that the condition is listed as ‘Factory Reconditioned.’ Having a few scratches is acceptable. As long as the unit works, does appearance really matter?
I’ve bought 3 over the years, and they’re all fine. Could just be luck of the draw, since they are refurbs.
I dunno. I’ve bought refurb things before. I expected “a few scratches”, some rubs, some surface flaws–after all, they were used. Instead, they looked brand new.
If it’s just “a few scratches” then that would be acceptable. But “excessive scratches and dents” would not be. “Reconditioning” means they fixed/replaced damaged or worn-out parts. And that should include the case if it’s dented or excessively scratched up
With this product, absolutely. It’s sold based on its looks as much as its function. Lots of competitive products deliver higher BTU’s per dollar, I’m pretty sure. This is attractive to potential buyers by its looks!
BTW, what the heck is the BTU’s on this unit? It’s not even specified… only its air flow rate (gal/sec). How much heating and how much cooling, in BTU’s??
Absolutely no cooling, it’s just a heater and fan. I find all of Dyson’s excessive BS about how well they are designed and how nothing else works properly offensive. They are just a lot of fluff words thrown around trying to do a snow job. Dyson doesn’t know anything every other design engineer knows. They are over priced even at the discounted scratch and dent price. You can buy something that does the same thing for $30 new without the scratches and dents.
I agree, and I’m a mechanical design engineer, LOL!! I was giving it the benefit of doubt, due to its clever uninformative advertising.
This is no more than a fan with the optional heat from a resistance heat coil… much like emergency heat coil in a heat pump = the most inefficient form of conventional heating.
Dyson products are pretty nifty gizmos, with much attention given to their romantic forms of “beauty”, but not enuf thus far to lure any $$$ out of my wallet.
That was a waste of 10 minutes of my life. This guy likes to hear himself talk and he never actually turns the damn thing on. A 10 min review and he doesn’t turn it on??? Good grief!
Picked one of these up last time they were around on woot. Housing appears brand-new.
The hot/cold (cold being just forced air) transition is a bit unintuitive. You need to turn the heat all the way down to 32 degrees to switch to cold.
It’s also a little noisier than I hoped. I wouldn’t say it’s any quieter than a conventional fan.
